foreverbeginshere: Lovely blog! I would like to be added to the directory. My name is Marissa and my SO is in the Army! 

Thank you so much love! Added :) xoxo

amanda-peters: I just found this blog and need encouragement from girls who have already been though this.. My guy is 82nd Airborne and this is my first deployment with him. I tried to prepare myself mentally for him being gone longer than expected (it's unsure how long he'll be gone, at most one year) but I SWEAR time is moving like molasses. I love and support him and what he is doing... But I selfishly just really want a hug!! Any encouraging words? 

I understand everything you are saying! There is nothing wrong with wanting a hug :) keep having faith in your relationship and planning ahead for the future. That’s a great way to stay positive about everything! Keep yourself busy and remember to be encouraging in his life :) stay strong!
Xoxo Alexa

"Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough…" Unknown (via psych-facts)

In 4 days I will be joining the MilSO community officially, my boyfriend of only 3 months is going into basic training, the pressure is on. I met him online maybe 5 months ago and we’ve been inseparable ever since. Considering the fact he lives 3 hours away from me we’ve managed to see each other twice. Ive been doing my research on do’s and don’ts. I genuinely love this man he’s already proven so much to me and not being able to talk to him every night or tell him when something good happened seems unbearable. What makes it a little more difficult is my MilSO isn’t out spoken and doesn’t like to share how he is feeling. Which i truly understand and never had a problem with, but the pressure is getting intense seeing him for the last time in 2 days makes me uneasy and i just need him to express himself even a little. He avoids talking about leaving too much, and I do too id rather talk about things going on daily while I still have him around. I just need that little bit of closure to tell me that he’s being strong for us and that he’s happy i guess being that we haven’t been together too long it worries me that he doesn’t understand how much i really care about him and how i really want to stay strong for him, for us. How do I tell him “see ya later?” when he drops me off? How do I hold back the tears? Im an emotional wreck and he knows it but i need him to know I’m strong and I got us while he’s away.
